Fort Collins, CO

Managing Food Allergies:  26 years

Worst Fear:  Misinformation Leading to Crisis

My Why:  When I was a young mother managing my children’s food allergies, there were very few resources and there was no Google.  Today, we are flooded with information espoused by Facebook groups and so-called industry experts. My goal is to sift through the mire of inter-web info and provide newly diagnosed with the sound, well-researched information, coping strategies, and life skills derived from reputable and respectable sources so that they can make intelligent decisions regarding the safety and care of their children and families. And I work with schools, too.  And restaurants. And businesses. And anyone interested in managing food allergies and other special dietary needs.

  • Educational Professional for 8+ years:  Well versed in IEPs, 504 Plans, and Bullying Issues

  • Former Director of Education and Training for AllerTrain

  • Founded AllerCuisine in 2018 (Food Allergy Management)

  • Community Activist

  • International Public Speaker: Member Women’s Speaker Association, Toastmasters

  • Conference for Food Protection:  Member Allergen Notification Committee

  • Mother of 2 talented, intelligent and supremely witty now-adult kids
